It was a warm Memorial Day weekend on the shores of Lake Superior, but no one would have guessed it based on views of the water Saturday.
“The first day I could wear shorts and a t-shirt, and then the ice had all blown back into shore,” says Ellen Airgood. The author of South of Superior runs a diner in Grand Marais with her husband.
Airgood says anglers aren’t thrilled, but a lot of tourists have been “tickled” by the sight. Some have even been testing out the waters. She shared some photos from a road trip she took along the shore Wednesday evening.
